Research Contents

I am interesiting in robotic technology which can proguress robots’ ability, especially in sensing system used for aquiring environmental information around the robot. Recently I am also interesting in applications of robots in society and adaptation of robotic technology to other research domain.

Attractive Factors of My Research

A robot is a result of implementation of a system integrated by mechanisms, sensing devices, computers, and software excuted in various level.
